National praise for Sussex scheme to support domestic abuse victims
A Sussex Police initiative to help domestic abuse victims during and since lockdown has been praised in a national report. The national report, 'Policing domestic abuse during the pandemic', is published by her Majesty's Inspectorate of Police, Fire and Rescue Services (HMICFRS) on 23 June. It highlights the way in which the force developed a team of specialist trained police officers and staff to deal with standard risk domestic abuse cases which are not high risk. These officers conduct virtual interviews with victims using discreet video conferencing technology. This enables officers to interact face to face with victims listening to their report, providing safeguarding advice and completing the initial investigation. Click here to read more.
